even if he finds out who owns it what will that change?

I used to work for a cell phone company(not going to say which one) but I can tell you that there are some definite shady capabilities of cell phone towers.
The first thing I would suggest is finding out if it a UMTS or CDMA or GSM tower-that would help narrow down which company owns it.
That's not a power supply.

Looks like a standard Fiberbond telecommunications shelter. Judging by the louveres on the right side of the shelter, I'd guess there's a generator located inside which would imply Verizon occupies the shelter. They don't like colocating with others in their buildings so not likely anyone else in there.
Tower from approaching private drive.
The trucks and such you saw on site were probably installing the UMTS equipment on the outdoor site, or possible installing equipment in the shelter. AT&T is in the process of installing UMTS 1900 MHz equipment all around the country.
Pretty standard stuff. Of course there was no one there when we took these shots and the Ryder truck had disappeared. The only thing really out of the place was the mailbox, but I have to assume that it is not for U.S. Mail, but rather for reporting and documentation among workers who maintain this particular tower. If not..then what?
